The conservative “go it alone” approach is incompatible with reality

On a hot and crowded planet, the conservative “go it alone” approach is fundamentally flawed.

This is far beyond the 300 million human beings living in the United States of America. That’s a drop in the bucket when you consider the over 7 billion people who now populate the planet. We know we are consuming resources beyond Earth’s capacity to renew, and that doesn’t even speak to the non-renewables. At some point we are going to have to wake up and realize that a “we are all in it together” approach is the only feasible way we move forward as a species.

We have one planet with limited resources. The conservative “go it alone” approach to any and all public policy is simply incompatible with this reality. For many this will remain a conspiracy, and for others, an inconvenient truth. But for the entire human species, it is our inescapable reality whether we choose to acknowledge it or not.
